Mazda and Toyota announced Wednesday that they had selected the TVA mega site in Limestone County for their newest manufacturing plant. The $1.6 billion joint venture in the city limits of Huntsville will employ up to 4,000 workers. A number of Alabama elected leaders reacted to the good economic development news.
“Toyota and Mazda’s decision to locate in Limestone County is great news for Alabama and the Tennessee Valley! I’m thankful Alabama was selected despite fierce competition from other states vying for this plant,” said U.S. Representative Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville. “Toyota and Mazda’s decision validates what many of us in Alabama already know. Alabama is not only America’s #1 football state, we are also on a path to be America’s #1 automotive production state. That is a strong testament to the quality of the location, resources, people and government leadership that Alabama offers.”
